Designing the New: Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow StyleThru Sun 06/05/2022
Designing the New: Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow Style presents 166 remarkable works of art and design by and related to the Glasgow School, the majority of which will be on public display for the first time in North America.
Characterized by taut lines, stylized natural forms, sleek curves, and emphatic geometries, the unique Glasgow Style emerged from the Arts and Crafts movement to become the only British response to international Art Nouveau in the late 1890s to 1900s.
The first Mackintosh retrospective to tour the United States in a generation, Designing the New introduces audiences to some of the architect-designer-artist’s most iconic works. It presents his big, bold graphic designs for posters and his high-backed chairs for Miss Catherine Cranston’s famous Glasgow artistic tearooms, in contrast with his lesser-known but equally striking experiments in textile design, interior design, and the intricate watercolors he painted in the last years of his life.
